This house served very well for our family visit to Santa Barbara over Thanksgiving weekend. The house is conveniently located close to the Hwy 101 freeway (yet the freeway traffic noise was not a problem for us). The grounds of the house include a small, but usable, pool and hot tub/spa; the pool is said to be heated to 80 degrees F. and can be heated to a higher temperature for a modest charge. There is also a nice outside patio next to the pool, which looks out over an ample lawn to a lovely garden with a splendid great tree.
The house itself is large and spacious--and is all on one floor; it is furnished with tasteful furniture, furnishings and decor (including a pool table and large wall TV in the great room). The kitchen is smallish, but it is very well equipped and serviceable; we could have used a larger table in the kitchen where we could gather while feeding the children. The bedrooms are large and comfortable, especially the master bedroom with its fireplace and separate and ample dressing area; and the beds in each room are very comfortable. Internet access was at all times reliable and fast throughout the house.
All in all, this house worked very well for our three generations: grandparents, two adult sons and their wives/significant others and two young grandchildren.
We were a group of people meeting each day to learn about Emotional Intelligence. The 4 women who stayed at the house enjoyed the comfort of the home as it was well equipped, cozy and spacious. We were also very close to great restaurants, the beach and shopping. Montecito is an area a bit south of Santa Barbara that is quiet and lovely. Our 4 additional students from the SB area joined us each day to study and they also relished the "learning environment" that we created together.
This charming home, located on an exclusive private lane in Montecito, is situated on over an acre of land, lending a decidedly country air to an otherwise centrally located home, just one mile from Miramar Beach and 1.5 miles from the Lower Village. Spacious accommodations complement a generous backyard with a pool, spa, bricked patio and grass surrounding a beautiful mature oak tree, creating a wonderful setting for late brunches and evening barbeques.
